|7" Galaxy Tab 2 in Gumdrop Protective Case|
The case came in earlier today, so I took a few pictures to give you and idea what it's about.
I must say that I was pleasantly surprised with the build quality and the construction. It consists of a plastic frame with a removable screen protector and the rubber back. The frame snaps around the front of the tablet with a tight, solid fit. The rubber piece (with a cosmetic “tire pattern”) pulls over the back of the assembly and is secured with a series of small tabs that fit into slits on the plastic frame. Once in the case, the table appears to be well protected. Rubber flaps of the case cover the charing port and the headphone connector.
So far I have found two minor drawbacks:
- The case is by no means water proof, since there are two speaker holes on the bottom and a microphone hole on the top.
- The process installation process is a bit finicky. The tabs are pretty thin, so it takes a few minutes to get the case to sit properly.
Overall, I'm very happy with the case. While I haven't mastered enough “intestinal fortitude” to drop- or splash-test the case, it makes the tablet feel much more garage-worthy.
